    December 13, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Let's not kid ourselves: Jewish Community Centers of Greater Los Angeles (JCCGLA) has been hurting for a long, long time. If some part of the system of centers and services are to be saved, as hundreds if not thousands of Jews are now trying to do, it will take surgery, not first...

    Though it is too early to judge the success of an administration, President Bush is headed in the right direction on many fronts. It is hoped that his leadership will have lasting effects in many areas.

  • Barak’s Legacy

    By Michael S. Arnold

    February 8, 2001 | 7:00 pm
